Happy Season Change!

Happy Season Change!

OK…Halloween is done and now we switch modes to full-on Holiday Mode!!!!  AMAZING as yes…I saw my first TV spot last night about Christmas.  Apparently November 1st is the official start of the holiday season?  This year it all makes a little sense as the weather is more like Christmas than fall anyway.  So when do you finally switch modes?  November 1?  After Thanksgiving OR do you wait until about a week before Christmas like me?  If I see any Christmas trees up in the next few days I may be knocking on some doors asking “WHY?”!!!  So, I will not wish you Happy Holidays for a few weeks yet.  Enjoy.

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

I recently put up a poll on our Facebook page regarding when you think will be the first day this year we hit 55 degrees.  Some interesting guesses.  It SEEMS like maybe August 12th?  That may be when the snow is completely gone. Now it’s my turn.  I think we may sneak close in March…read more »

OK…how do you plan your tax season?  I know a LOT of folks that wait till last minute.  Especially if they pay in.  I actually try to do mine right away.  If I have to pay in at least I know right away and I can prepare and pay it then toward the deadline.  I’d…read more »
